The Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival returned to Las Vegas last month (September 17–19), with a sound system supplied by Solotech in partnership with Meyer Sound.
With a record-breaking attendance of 170,000, the three-day event featured show-stopping performances by Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, A$AP Rocky, Green Day, and more than 100 additional acts.
Sound solutions for the festival were supplied by Solotech in partnership with Meyer Sound, which provided PA systems for the festival’s three main stages. The main Downtown Stage and Bacardí Stage featured Meyer Sound LEO and LYON linear line array loudspeakers, complemented by 900-LFC and 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements, and the Huntridge Stage featured a mix of medium and wide-pattern LYON loudspeakers and 900-LFC low-frequency control elements.
Among the key challenges for the production team was the task of designing systems with fixed placement in the confines of an urban environment. Compounding the challenge of keeping sound within festival grounds, the team could not control delay tower placement. To overcome these difficulties, they turned to system modeling, with assistance from Meyer Sound’s MAPP 3D system design and prediction software.
